Portraits!  Rich oils, soft pastels, transluscent watercolors and bold charcoal!  They are what we create. 

As our business and passsion  we take our portraits very seriously! We create them for You, our client.  Because we understand the trust you have placed in our abilities to create not only the likeness of your loved ones but to illuminate the qualities and individuality of those same subjects!  
 Portraits-A small investment in the very large scheme of life.One that becomes, as our clients share with us, one of your most emotionally valuable possessions.
Theresa and Steve, 
I cannot begin to tell you how much the many portraits that you two have created for my family over the years have meant to my husband and I! You have created watercolors, pastels, cameo pencils and have been such a pleasure to work with! You have seen my children grow! Wow-from small children to college students to a West Point graduate, you are like family! Grandchildren must be next right? Many, many  thanks for the continued pleasure we take in viewing our portraits!
Warmly,P. Runyons
